Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


The present and the potential performances of opto-electronic elements such as a laser diode (LD), a photo diodes (PD) and an optical waveguide for optical interconnects are described. The fabrication and the integration technologies of the opto-electronic chips are also mentioned. The topics to be highlighted include: (1) the state of the art of vertical cavity surface emitting laser diodes (VCSELs) for optical interconnects, (2) the performance analysis of the optical interconnects with integrated optical waveguides and free space optics, and (3) Opto-electronic integration technology: hybrid-integration technique [1]. receiver and transmitter design for on-chip and intra-chip optical interconnects.
